If you're craving Blue Jackets hockey, I've got good news for you.

Starting on Sept. 15, the Jackets will participate in the NHL Prospects Tournament in Traverse City, Michigan. 

What is this tournament?

This tournament is a great place for lesser-known prospects and players on PTOs to play in front of other teams' scouts in addition to an opportunity for the younger players to build chemistry.

Who's playing?

Notable Blue Jackets prospects on the roster include Kent Johnson, David Jiricek, Denton Mateychuk, and Kirill Marchenko. Trent Vogelhuber, the head coach of the Cleveland Monsters, Columbus' AHL affiliate, will coach the squad. The full roster is in the embedded tweet below. 

When are the games?

The Jackets will play the Blues on Sept. 15 at 3 p.m. ET, the Red Wings on Sept. 16 at 3 p.m. ET, and the Maple Leafs on Sept. 18 at 2 p.m. ET.

How can I watch the games?

Per the team's website, the games will stream live on BlueJackets.com and Youtube.com/BlueJackets.
